This is one of those times when you go back to housing department administration and say, "Look. Switching out my horrible old roommate with his equally horrible BROTHER, a person who was raised in the same family and behaves and responds to others in the exact same way as his sibling, doesn't seem to meet the spirit of the option this university gives to students to switch roommates once a year. If the newly assigned roommate was horrible, but in different ways than the roommate I just switched from, that would be one thing. But, this switch essentially just gave me back a clone of the roommate from which I was trying to escape. What can you do to help me out? I'm begging you."
Stop being a cry baby. Kick some ass and take some names...Chuck Norris would be ashamed of you.
Unless he's a crack addict who anally rapes you in the middle of the night, just deal with it. If he's the type to make noise and bounce off the walls, you wouldn't be the only with a complaint, therefore HE'D be the one moving, not you. He's playing practical jokes on you isn't he? If so, learn some of your own and dish it back out, ya baby.
If you PAY to be in a place, you shouldn't just "put up" with annoying roommates. That's not fair at all. They aren't being a baby. I paid top dollars on campus 3 years ago to be close to my classes and have a really good room with kitchen and living space. My roommate was rude, loud, always had her boyfriend over every night, drank, smoked, lalala the list goes on. Seeing as I was paying nearly $1,000 to live there, I sure as hell did not put up with her for very long. She got the boot. Don't tell the OP not to be a baby when it comes to things you PAY for. And it should be up to the RA or administrator to make sure your new roommate isn't related or whatever to the old roommate. I'm sure if the OP said something, they would make some changes.
Of course that depends on the school...at my school, the cheapest dorm is between $8000-$9000 for 8-months for the school session. The higher end ones are around $12k! It definitely sucks to have a shitty roommate too, especially if you're required to live in the dorms as a freshman and already stressed with adjusting to a new lifestyle. I agree the administration should try to accommodate you as best they could, but consider living in a single if you think you would do better living alone!
